I really like 1980. 15 years in and the band straddles youthful energy with a seasoned approach and pacing. The first set consists of 13 songs, by comparison there are some 85-87 first sets with 6 songs...the sound of the available sources could be better from a technical point of view, but this is certainly listenable in every regard...Garcia steps into Alabama Getaway a bit more than usual, Sugaree is a monster, Garcia tapped into 2 huge Sugarees in consecutive playings, this one and 09-02-1980...this one might be my favorite, either way, both could very well be top ten for sure...China>Rider is nice...The second set is even better and chock loaded with good jamming vehicles, Shakedown Street, Playin', UJB, NFA...2 encores is typically reserved for the good nights and this is one of the best ones of 1980...

24 tunes all together and that's not even counting the reprises...

Set 1: Alabama Getaway-> Greatest Story Ever Told, Sugaree, Me & My Uncle-> Mexicali Blues, Tennessee Jed, Feel Like A Stranger, Friend Of The Devil, Far From Me, Little Red Rooster, China Cat Sunflower-> I Know You Rider-> Promised Land

Set 2: Shakedown Street, Lost Sailor-> Saint Of Circumstance, Althea, Playin' In The Band-> Uncle John's Band-> Drums-> Not Fade Away-> The Wheel-> Uncle John's Band-> Playin' In The Band-> Sugar Magnolia

E1: One More Saturday Night->
E2: Brokedown Palace

This was the last show until the Warfield run , and the last of the EC tour begun on 8 - 16 - 80 ( wish we had a SBD for that night esp. for the He's Gone ). Also , the first EC Wheel since '77 . This seemed a fun end to the tour and to the summer . The band did not seem exhausted or toasted as Strat. indicated by the set list and energy of the playing . What is it about Maine ? Man , they had some barn burners in that state .
Set 2 is where I usually find myself . Just b/c I am highlighting PITB ->Sugar Mags does not mean nuggets are to be found elsewhere .
The quality of the sources on this tour varies widely . Check out the first post KG He's Gone on the aforementioned 8 - 16 - 80 . ( KG had died on July 23rd . ) The quality of the sound may make you cry . As far 9 - 6 - 80 , there are 10 different sources . If you are exploring this night give yourself the time to go through the sources . Have fun .

Sorry so late to throw in my 2 cents, but took some time off with the wife the past few days. 9/6 is my B-Day and I usually celebrate by blasting this one. Second set is just fantastic. Started the morning commute with this one turned up to 11. Well, it's back to work and back to bothering you freaks.

Happy belated birthday...or is it the prospect of lows in the 60s that has put a smile back on your face? No disrespect to spousal ability to achieve that, just sayin.

This staggering show has a second set that evolves and triumphs into what is IMHO the Best Brent-era show ever performed. The playing is excited, sometimes sloppy and risk taking and often brilliant in its effect. The crowd is going wild and this must have been one great afternoon to behold. I got a TDK cassette of this tape back in 1982 and I still play it, even though its crumbling and wavering and i could find better sources here on the Archive but this tape travelled with me from NY to Phoenix, a relic and great Freaking Show!!! The Althea is ripping and the whole Playing in the Band>Uncle Johns sequence is the core of being a DeadHead...

Isn't this the Brokedown Palace that is on Dead Set?

I wouldn't know. Mine was a download from Sony's old worthless music download site. and the original version was replaced with a Keith and Donna version.

Like the time my DL of Led Zep's first album contained Royal Orleans instead of Communication Breakdown.

In ranking Sugarees, this is the only non-77 I can put on a list with the great 1977 versions. Some of the little tunes are played very well here, including the FOTD. Really like the Lost > Saint too. Great show, and a great week in GD history.

Most unfortunate that no SBD exists, anywhere.

So the Joe Samaritano first set labeled SBD is not in fact a board? I know the last 3 songs of it are definitely an aud. Maybe Charlie Miller can clue us in what the story behind that source is.

A full show board for commercial release is what I had in mind. Not in the vault unfortunately.
